Africa (A Tribute to Toto)

by Chaos Divine

about

While the band is hard at work writing material for their next album, the follow up to the 2011 studio release The Human Connection, Chaos recently payed tribute to one of their most cherished musical influences by recording a beefed-up studio version of Toto's classic smash hit anthem '"Africa".

2012 marks the 30th anniversary since the release of the group's legendary Toto IV album, originally recorded in 1982. Containing other classics such as '"Rosanna" and "I Won't Hold You Back", the album went on to win six Grammy Awards, and is regarded as one of the defining records for the ballad-rock era of the 80's and 90's.

Chaos Divine's modernised cover version of the song was engineered and mixed earlier this year at Perth's Crank studios by guitarist and audio producer Simon Mitchell, and mastered by Jens Bogren of Fascination Street Studios in Sweden.
